ACHF Arts Access
The artist will create and exhibit a focused body of work aimed at engaging the public in a discussion about the ecology of invasive plant species. Success will be evaluated by the completion and exhibition of new works as well as through tracking the attendance at the exhibition. 2: The artist will host a two-session public workshop where participants will create and print collagraphs using invasive plant specimens. Success will be evaluated by the artist’s ability to gather hands-on experience hosting and teaching her first formal printmaking workshop.
Koehler exhibited twenty-eight new prints, including the nine works committed to in the grant application involving reduction woodcut and collagraph. Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts tracked attendance to the facility throughout the exhibition. Attendance at Crossings at Carnegie during the grant window is an estimate based on typical daily attendance. 2: Emily Gray Koehler has gained experience teaching printmaking workshops and has proceeded to offer workshops out of her own studio. Evaluation methods were qualitative, looking at the artist’s success in hosting the workshop and interacting with the students. The artist received a verbal review from the students at the end of the workshop which was overwhelmingly positive.
